The Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization (JEBO) will publish a special issue on empirical research in Behavioral Finance. For several decades now, Behavioral Finance has been integrating insights from the broad social science perspective into the research in financial economics. Along with enriching our understanding of human financial decision making and the resulting market dynamics, the interaction with other fields of study has also paved the way for the use of alternative data and methods in financial research.
The aim of the special issue is to advance our understanding of financial behavior by means of observation. We particularly seek and will give preference to empirical work that uses non-standard data, including papers reporting on innovative experiments, field data, qualitative or quantitative surveys, and other types of data which are not available in standard databases. We welcome papers that examine the financial decisions of individuals (in their role as consumers, investors, managers or advisors), the financial behavior of groups and organizations (in the public and private sectors), the dynamics of markets, and the interaction among these different forms of aggregation.
Submission. Please submit your manuscript via JEBO’s online submission and editorial system, and select “Behavioral Finance Special Issue”. To be considered for publication, manuscripts must be received by February 28, 2013. Please conform to the standard guidelines for submission to JEBO. Details can be found in the Guide for Authors section at the Journal’s website http://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-economic-behavior-and-organization. We expect the special issue to appear in print in the first half of 2014. JEBO’s standard submission fee is waived for this special issue.
One-revision policy. To speed up the revision process, we will apply a one-revision policy. All publication decisions will be made after no more than one revision. Submissions are first screened by the editors, and those within the scope of the special issue are then sent to expert referees for evaluation."
